I love the weather, but that's a minority view.  I just met a woman who moved 
from Eureka to Woodland and she loves the weather here.  Supposedly studies 
have shown that there is more depression in environments like that in Arcata 
and Eureka.  It was foggy there last week and I loved it.

Okay, we're talking about Arcata here.  The cultural environment in Eureka 
(only six miles away) is very different.  Parts of these two communities do 
not like the other.  Old Town Eureka is quite nice, but I'm not sure I'd like 
to live in Eureka.

There is also something of a housing shortage up there.  There are gullies 
and ravines running through Arcata and Eureka, and there's not a lot of room 
for new housing.  But, my brother in law builds houses, so if you need a 
contractor let me know.
